My Story

For years, I felt at the mercy of my circumstances…

For years, I felt at the mercy of my circumstances. I was a master at making everything look good on the outside, but inside I felt empty. I was consumed by work that I loved. I was out of balance, but didn’t understand why or how to change. I knew there had to be a better way of doing life. I took a deep look into what was running my life. The choices I made after changed everything in the most amazing way.

I made it my mission to clean my life up from the inside out. I’ve been doing this work in my own life for over 2 decades.

My life’s work is to ignite possibility and equip people with
the mindsets and toolsets to create true, lasting change.

People go to the gym to build strong, healthy bodies.

Clients work with me to create deep, rich, fulfilling lives.

  • Raising two kind, independent, resilient young men.
  • Allowed the life-changing tool of journaling to lead me as a
  • Started my first company, Sanity Journals, in 2005 to inspire and empower women seeking growth and change through the powerful tool of writing.
  • Built a business as a playground where I could help to make a deep, important impact in people’s lives.
